We welcome back of our founder writers at Gunners Town – Darren Wright with a sanitised version, that will make Newsnow (less sweary bits) of a piece that he posted on his own personal blog
Let’s have it right, the terms AKB or WOB are a complete utter and total embarrassment.
Whenever I stick my nut on Twitter and see someone having a pop at someone else, and they’re calling them either of the above, I feel like throwing my phone/laptop against the wall and looking for a wimp to have a fight with who I can hopefully beat up.
Whoever invented AKB or WOB seriously needs a dry slap round the mush and if I had my way they’d be banished to a prison cell and made to listen to ‘What Does The Fox Say?‘ all day, on repeat, for the rest of their stinking existence.
In all honesty social media does not help. It gives complete and utter dullards (like myself) a voice. It kind of makes me wanna go back to the days when the only form of social media was a telephone box and you had 20p to make a call. I log onto Twitter now and the amount of infighting between Gooners is an absolute joke. We have become the laughing stock of English football. Fans of other clubs find us hilarious and not in a good way.
We have people calling each other the most horrific stuff all because they can’t agree on one subject: Arsene Wenger.
I can read one tweet, it appears perfectly reasonable, and I find myself nodding away like that Bulldog from the Churchill insurance adverts.
Then, I can read another tweet, and I feel like drinking ten pints of Stella Artois and going on a rampage somewhere. Somewhere like Stoke, and destroying all them inbreeds with a toilet brush.
I understand people get frustrated, I get frustrated, but sometimes people can go over the top with their reactions.
Constructive criticism is always welcome in my eyes. If someone has a valid point about something I will respect it, even if I don’t agree with it. But the only criticism I seem to see on Twitter these days is sheer abuse. Trust me; some of the abuse I’ve seen levelled at Wenger is borderline hatred.
I wouldn’t speak to my worst enemy the way some speak about the Arsenal gaffer and if you ask me a smack on the bottom or washing some mouths out with a bar of soap wouldn’t go amiss.
Let’s face it, Arsenal fans are split at the moment. That’s obvious. We’re split more than my 32 inch waist Levi 501’s after I tried to squeeze my fat arse in them.
Sometimes I think the only remedy is for every Gooner in the world to get on a field and have a massive tear up, Hooligan Factory style. Have a free-for-all then all shake hands.
At the end of the day we all have different opinions and that’s the beauty of something like Twitter. We can debate whether Arsene is still the right man for Arsenal or not, like normal humans. Unfortunately the real world isn’t like that and people can’t debate, they just abuse.
And on the subject of abuse one man I think doesn’t deserve that is Arsene Wenger. I know you’re thinking ‘here we go, another AKB’ and if you are then I’m gonna hunt you down and suck your eyes out through a straw.
Let me tell you why he doesn’t deserve abuse; because of what he’s done for Arsenal Football Club. Don’t get me wrong, Arsenal Football Club has been very good to Arsene Wenger too and in truth, Arsenal fans have, in the majority been very patient with Arsene during the ‘barren times’.
However the things I read thrown at him sometimes are disgusting and he deserves so much more than that. It appears Wenger’s time at Arsenal could be coming to end. I don’t think this summer and I hope not too if I’m honest. He has one more year left on his contract and I would love him to see it out and go out with a massive bang. Not a bang on the chin but a title.
I’m personally of the opinion it IS a bit stale at the club and a few new faces through the door would freshen that out, player wise.
Arsene Wenger is the GREATEST manager Arsenal has ever had and more than likely will ever have. One more year for him to put right this season (and it has ended up more horrible than Beth Ditto farting in your mouth) and we go from there. See where we’re at in December/January and if things aren’t improving then change next summer. That’s where I’m at in the Wenger situation.
One thing you’ll never see me do is abuse the man. If the day comes and I think we need change, and maybe that time is sooner than I think, I will air my views respectfully. Because that’s the least a man who spent 20 years of his life dedicated to OUR club, two-thirds of my life, deserves.
Keep it Goonerish……….
